Once I opened my eyes. The sky never looked as mesmerizing as before. The colors around me never as vivid. What did change I thought to myself? The world around me didn’t change. I did. I found stillness in-between useless thoughts and endless worrying. And the more I observed the present moment the more I could see the beauty in the smallest things. My eyes cannot unsee what eye see now and I am forever grateful. Magic still exists and I found myself a whole lotta magic in Lombok, Indonesia. This is my photoblog:
As some of you may know I’m traveling through Asia again and I still feel like I’m living some kind of fairytale receiving magic every day. I feel very grateful to be able to explore myself and this part of the world.
Taman Nasional Rinjani
Taman Nasional Rinjani is located in the North of Lombok and is one of the biggest Geoparks in the world. It’s the perfect spot to do trekkings to Rinjani which is the second highest volcano in Indonesia. It’s thought that Rinjani comes from the Javanese term for God.
Besides trekkings, it’s a good place to walk around and be amazed by the 4 waterfall in the area. We hired a guide for a day which was the best option because he brought us to a secret waterfall with no tourists at all. The lush forrest made me feel some type a way though; I felt like Alice in Wonderland.
“Down the rabbit hole, we go Alice. Let’s see how far this thing goes and leave everything behind that we thought we once knew.”
“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.” – Alan Watts 🌴And oh yes – I will dance with it. 😏 You just got to know when it’s time to take the jump. • • • • • • #lombok #waterfall #riseup #travelling #travel #wanderlust #nature #freespirit #spirit #alamwatts #igtravel #travel #love #photography #adventure
Finding stillness in paradise island – Gili Nanggu
Gili Nanggu is one of the ‘secret Gilis’ located in the heart of Sekotong Bay in the South of Lombok. This small chain of islands is perfect to do a snorkeling trip.
The sacred Spiral is perhaps the most ancient spiritual symbol known to humankind. The spiral reminds us that we hold the power to expand and grow towards light and ascension. The spiritual path is not a straight line but a spiral in which we find deeper truths about ourselves. We are constantly expanding and growing.
Just in time to admire the sun.
I really loved exploring Lombok. The divine white beaches and stunning landscapes make me really want to come back to explore more.
